give NU another
perfect home record
By Sam McKewon
Another season, another perfect record at the NU Coliseum
for the Nebraska volleyball team.
The Comhuskers closed out their regular-season home sched
ule with three-game sweeps over both Baylor and No. 23 Texas
Tech this season. NU now has won 59 straight matches at the
Coliseum and 61 of its last 62 home matches overall.
The Huskers swept the Bears on Friday night 15-8,15-7,15-1
for their second three-game sweep of BU this season.

minutes. Sophomore outside
hitter Nancy Meendering led
NU with 16 and 14 digs, while middle blocker ToniaTauke added
seven blocks and 13 kills, one off her career high.
Senior Megan Korver, playing in her last regular-season home
match of her career, added nine kills and seven blocks of her own.
“I was glad to see Megan get untracked tonight,” NU Coach
Terry Pettit said of the middle blocker, who had been battling
Nebraska didn’t trail in the first game against Tech and only
briefly trailed in the second. NU erased a 5-4 deficit with 11
“Tech played well in spurts,” Pettit said. “They got our atten
tion, and I thought we started serving a little bit better.”
The Huskers started driving the ball on serves and bringing
Texas Tech setter Lisa Hilgers away from the net, taking away
some of the Red Raiders’ attack opportunities. NU turned a 5-5 tie
third game into 12-6 en route to winning the game 15-8.

weekend, NU held opponents to a .032 hitting percentage.
Texas Tech was led by Kristen Holmes and Lori Garber, who
-each had 10 kills.Together, they also combined for 15 errors.
The weekend at home served as a primer for the last two weeks
of the season, in which NU will play the four other best teams in
the conference on the road. NU travels to Texas A&M and Texas
Friday and Saturday, and to Colorado and Kansas State the week
“I think we’re ready,” Korver said. “We’ll rest tomorrow, but
we’ll have a hard week of practice.”
_ Saturday marked the last official game for seniors Korver,
I»iineJ^f^.dak;ami Fiona Nepo and junior Denise Koziol.

first and second rounds of NCAA Tournament and possibly a
HUSKERS from page 8
for the first time this season. Nebraska
forced a season-high five KSU turnovers,
converted three for scores and still lost.
Bishop fumbled four times but led KSU
with 140 yards rushing
But the biggest surprise may have been
Crouch, a redshirt freshman starting the
fourth game of his career because of an
injury to former No. 1 quarterback Bobby
Newcombe. Crouch rushed for 108 yards
and threw for 139 yards and three scores.
He led the Huskers to a 30-27 lead
when he hit Sheldon Jackson for a 9-yard
touchdown pass with 8:22 remaining in
the fourth quarter. Kansas State answered,
with Bishop capping a 10-play, 80-yard
drive with an 11-yard touchdown pass to
Darnell McDonald that gave KSU a 34-30
NU rush end Chad Kelsay praised
Bishop, who passed for 54 yards on the
drive and accounted for 81 percent of the
Wildcats total offense. Bishop racked up
446 yards on the day.
“Hats off to him,” Kelsay said. “When
our offense puts up that many points, we as
the defense should be about to win the
game. We should have won the game. But
they made some big plays that hurt us.
Bishop was frustrated in die first half, but
he bounced back, and so did they, and
that’s die sign of a good team.”
Nebraska struck early, a rare occur
rence for the injury-plagued offense this
Crouch threw for each of Nebraska’s
first-half scores, hitting Jackson with an 8
yard pass in the to cap an 80-yard opening
drive that took only 3:31 and gave NU a 7
0 lead. Bishop tied the game with a 2-yard
touchdown run, but the Huskers regained
the lead when Kenny Cheatham snagged a
45-yard strike with one hand.
“It had been awhile since we came out
and scored that way,” Crouch said. “It def
initely helped our confidence.”
Kelsay knocked the ball from Bishop—
his second fumble of the game - and Clint
“He was carrying the ball out there like
a loaf of bread,” Kelsay said.
Nebraska drove 62 yards to the 1-yard
line, but settled for a Kris Brown field
goal. Bishop answered, guiding the
Wildcats 76 yards in 57 seconds. The
Heisman candidate ran the ball in from the
1-yard line, decreasing NU’s lead to 17-14
at the end of die second half.
The momentum had shifted. The
Husker offense stalled in die third quarter.
NU rushed nine times for 15 yards.
KSU took a 21-17 lead when Bishop
hit McDonald, who totaled 183 yards
receiving, for a touchdown with 8:20 left in
the third quarter. The Wildcats scored
again on a 25-yard field goal by Martin
But Ralph Biown tied die score at 24
when he picked up a Bishop fumble and
returned it 74 yards for a score.
“That got us back in the game,” NU
offensive tackle Adam Julch said. “At the
time, our confidence might have been slip
ping a bit But Ralph’s return was big.”
Gramatica broke the tie with his sec
ond field goal of the game three minutes
later, capping a 13-play, 63-yard drive and
giving the Wildcats a 27-24 lead.
“If you would have told me before the
game hat we would have five turnovers, I
would have been 100 percent sure that we
would have won,” Brown said. “But we
couldn’t stop Bishop. The defense lost this
Brown added that the Huskers will
move on and said Nebraska must now
focus on its Nov. 27 date with Colorado in
Lincoln and earning a bowl bid.
But thoughts of next year’s game with
KSU in Lincoln have already entered
some of the Huskers’ heads.
“The last time we lost to these guys,
none of us was even bom,” Jackson said.
“This is just one year. We have a lot of new
guys who haven’t learned how to win yet
The torch being passed? I don’t buy hat
“I take nothing from heir win. They’re
a good team. But I believe the best team in
he country has three losses this season,
and it wears ‘N’ on its helmets.”
Wildcats earn respect m win over Huskers
KSU from page 9
drop,” McDonald said. “I saw the ball
come in slow motion.
“(Bishop) told me, ‘I was praying you
weren’t going to drop it.’ I was praying
In the first half, McDonald told
Snyder, “You can count on me.”
“I felt I was in the zone, like in the
Fiesta Bowl,” McDonald said. “I felt very
confident coming in. When (Erwin)
Swiney went out, my confidence shot
through the roof. It meant I had a freshman
(Keyou Craver) on me.”
As the game wound down, McDonald
said he was making sure the Wildcats did
n’t fumble the ball or make another stupid
mistake to let them lose the game.
Snyder pointed to several key plays as
momentum swings in toe Wildcats’ favor.,
including toe touchdown right before toe
half - which brought KSU within a field
goal - toe numerous stops by toe Wildcat
defense on third down in the second half and
the missed extra point by Kris Brown, to
leave the game 33-30 in the fourth quarter.
“They were emotional momentum
swings,” Snyder said. “You saw an emo
tional rise (on the Brown miss). You realize
you can stay in toe game with a field goal.
That gave us a lift.”
Snyder said he couldn’t have predicted
the way Saturday’s game with No. 11
“I would never have guessed 40-30,”
But he will take the outcome.
“I’m happy,” Snyder said. “I can assure
you of that I’m humbled by it in all hon
esty because ofhow long it took. I’m proud
of the youngsters who laid the foundation
for the program. It means so much to the
guys who have stuck through it through
thick and thin.”
One of those guys was Clements, a 6
foot-3 250-pound senior from Emporia,
Kan. He said the last few ticks on the clock
“By the time it said zero, I was settled
down,” Clements said. “I’m so proud of Hj
myself andthisteam.lt’since toTihally
beat these guys. I’m glad I could go out and
beat Nebraska in my senior year”
